About the Photographer
Thank you for visiting my site! "Capturing special moments...for a lifetime of memories" has been my motto since the beginning of my photography business fifteen years ago. At that time, I didn't have a nice website like this one for others to view my work, but my passion for photography, was then, and still remains--to capture something unique and very special for every single client that steps in front of my lens. Many of my sessions take place on our beautiful island. So, please make sure to visit the 'What We Do' tab to see sample images from this area.
I love to capture memories wherever I am planted and of whomever finds themselves on the other side of my lens. I have had the privilege of shooting on location in several states as well as internationally. I love meeting people and documenting their moments.
Having said that, let me tell you a little of my story as a photographer. As I watched my first baby grow, I wanted to capture every moment. I loved finding her in special moments and snapping a quick picture of her at play. Never did I realize those beginnings would find me where I am today. When I returned to college, I thoroughly enjoyed my photography classes where I learned to develop and work with film, while also improving my technique and developing my style. I find myself using many of those early principles, currently, in my digital photography.
I love meeting new people –a side benefit of being a Navy wife for 20 years—and I enjoy working with people of all ages. I especially enjoy capturing babies and children in their spontaneity with their inquisitive eyes as they explore the beautiful world God has created. I love working with families and capturing the personality and relationships within - and those families in beach images on our gorgeous Amelia Island, doesn't get much better. It is thrilling to capture teenagers, including high school seniors in and around Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, at this memorable time in their lives. I adore capturing the twinkle of new love in the eyes of engaged couples and love, love, love secret proposals. And, of course, capturing the emotion of a new bride and groom on their wedding day is always a joyful experience. I am grateful to the people that have invited me to be a part of their lives to capture these special moments for a lifetime of memories--and to the Lord to whom I owe it all. I love what I do. I hope you can tell by the images you see.
Enjoy--Pam Bell, Amelia Island, Florida.
